Lakeside’s motto—"nurturing mind, body and spirit"—is a perfect description for the focus of our retreat-by-the-lake. Idlewyld Bed & Breakfast is a century home with a big porch, the perfect place for muse chasing, quiet contemplation, listening to and writing words, stimulating conversation, and timeless walks. Friday dinner, Saturday breakfast and lunch, and Sunday breakfast will be served.

A Winding Road - Writing
- Claudia J. Taller
- My book, "Ohio's Lake Erie Wineries," an Arcadia production, explores the history of island and lakeshore wineries from the mid-1800s through today. I write travel, memoir, profiles, book reviews, local interest articles, and fiction. My writing is always of discovery--whether it's journaling, book reviewing, letter writing, or sharing an experience of life. I have written two novels and am working on a third novel and a memoir. I am passionate about sharing what life has to offer with others. "The Artist's Way" by Julia Cameron woke me up to a sense of possibility--life is too short not be enjoyed by living deeply and well. I created Igniting Possibilities, a conduit for creativity workshops and events, in the hope of guiding others to realize their full potential. The Word Lover's Retreats at Lakeside, Ohio's Chautauqua community, help writers find their voice and direction.
